Goodreads asked M.J. Payne:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

M.J. Payne I work on another project then return to the previous one. Or I sleep on it. I also leave unwritten part of what I know I will write on a manuscript and that primes the pump for the next day. I find that my mind works on a problem when I am doing other things. When I return the answer is quite often there.
